A 21-year-old has told how he is back on the straight and narrow after having surgery to correct a botched nose job.

Chad Dee, a support worker, was left with a seriously bent nose following an accident on his BMX aged just 11.

He was denied a nose job until he was 18, so he went under the knife just one day after the milestone birthday in a bid to remove the kink.

But the long-awaited NHS op shunted his nose to the right, making him unable to breathe, and made traumatised Chad even more self-conscious.

Chad has now undergone life-changing plastic surgery with a world-leading rhinoplasty surgeon, returning the facial feature to normal.

The youngster, from Coney Hill, Gloucester, said the procedure has given him a new lease of life and has given him the confidence to leave his house once again.
